  11. I recently got Remote Desktop up and working.

    I notice that almost all the posts related to Remote Desktop include using
    the ‘IPCONFIG’ command to determine the target computer’s IP address.

    While I assume this is done because most PC’s are configured to get ‘the
    next IP’ available from the router, I had assigned a static IP address to
    the target computer. So, I already knew the target’s IP address without
    using IPCONFIG.

    Even though I followed all the steps here, it still wouldn’t work. Here’s
    why:

    If the target Windows 7 computer has a static IP, make sure you also do
    this:
    A) Open Control Panel
    B) Select ‘Network and Sharing Center’
    C) Select ‘Change Adapter Settings’ (at left)
    D) Right-Click on the network adapter (Note: pick to be used by remote
    desktop is you have more than one adapter)
    E) Select ‘Properties’ from the drop-down list
    F) Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’
    G) Click the ‘Properties’ button below
    H) Click the ‘Advanced’ button
    I) Select the ‘WINS’ tab at top
    J) Ensure check-box ‘Enable LMHOSTS lookup’ is checked
    K) In the ‘NetBIOS setting’ box below, Select ‘Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP’
    L) Click ‘OK’, ‘OK’ , ‘Close’ buttons as the pop-up are closed out each
    pop-up (don’t use ‘Cancel’)
    M) Close the ‘Control Panel’ window
    N) Restart the PC (probably not needed, but a restart won’t ever hurt
    anything)

  12. What is the difference between the last 2 remote desktop settings? 

  13. WONT WORK 

  14. i finally did it , my credentials did not work because i changed my user

    how to do sorry i fi come off as dumb or something but it would most
    definately help me

  25. You made the point that only one user can be logged on at a time, that is
    only true in certain versions. The server versions since 2K server have
    allowed you to log in twice, simultaneously, but as different sessions.
    Comes in handy if you haven’t had your coffee and flub your password a few
    times and lock yourself out. I would recommend you that if people are going
    to do this that you inform them how to set up time out and idle periods.
    And above all else set the lock periods to expire or you will be locked out
    until you can get to the machine and console in.
